The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) published Small Town and Rural Multimodal Networks, a resource for transportation practitioners in small towns and rural communities.
It applies existing national design guidelines in a rural setting and highlights small town and rural case studies. It addresses challenges that are specific to rural areas and focuses on opportunities to make improvements despite the geographic, fiscal, and other challenges that many rural communities face. It includes several concepts applicable to National Scenic and Historic Trails, including paths along highways, access to small towns, and highway crossings.
